Increase the fiber in your diet and save on dish washing by eating tasty uncooked oatmeal. Yes, uncooked oatmeal. Don't knock it until you have tried it!
When visiting Turkey, I noticed uncooked oatmeal on the breakfast buffet. I asked my Turkish host and learned that regular uncooked oatmeal is a common breakfast food eaten as a cold cereal with milk. I wouldn't think of messing up a pot to cook oatmeal when it tastes BETTER uncooked. The one minute or quick cooking variety (not instant) is best when eating oatmeal as a cold cereal.
Can't sleep? Uncooked oatmeal with milk is a quick, and easy midnight snack when you have jetlag or other difficulty sleeping. Both the milk and oats are natural sedatives.
At other times, I also stir uncooked oatmeal into my yogurt for added flavor, texture, and fiber.

This is a wonderful idea. It could also be added to a bowl of cold cereal. At least 2 brands of cold cereal I have bought have oats in them. Thanks for sharing.
I love uncooked oatmeal too. I chop up an apple, then add the oatmeal & let it sit in milk for a few minutes. Delicious.
I add 1 cup quick oats to my banana bread, let it set in the egg, pureed banana, and oil mixture for 1 minute, then proceed. Possibly adds a little more fiber to the recipe, but it's better than white flour. It's the recipe from, "The Taming of the Candy Monster". One cup quick cooking oatmeal to 1 1/2 cups flour to 5 bananas. I divide that 1 1/2 flour into 1 c. white flour and 1/2 c. whole wheat flour.
If you want to increase the nutty flavor of oatmeal, try roasting it, either in a frypan or the oven for a few minutes. It really brings out a wonderful flavor. Do the same with nuts. I always make my banana bread using oats to make it healthier.
